VIRGINIA — For those who 3 a.m. is just too early to get out of bed, here is a timelapse of Tuesday morning’s lunar eclipse blood moon.
The video was created by Christopher Becke by taking a high resolution photograph every five minutes over the course of nearly three hours, beginning at 3:19 a.m. local time. He then stitched the photos together to bring us this final result where moonset happens at 6:14 a.m. local time into the trees.
According to NASA, it was the last total lunar eclipse until 2025. It was visible across North and Central America, Asia, Australia, and New Zealand.
